what about listening to fht's in labor? did anyone do it w/ a fetascope?
what's the best quality/cheapest fetascope?
this is excellent advice.
it's put my mind at ease.
i've just joined the group as i have been doing research on ultrasound safety and i don't like what i found.
so i am going to ask my midwife to use a fetascope too.
i was looking for fetascope info and came across this discussion.
i like all the info you gave on using it like how easy it was for you to hear your little babas heart beat.
i wonder if i could ask you a question.
i'm pregnant since the 6 th of sept 2013 from my own dates i'm very sure of the conception date.
though i hadn't been having periods as i was still breastfeeding my now 1 yr and 7 month boy.
but one must have been due as i conceived on the 6th of sept.
though for calculating my babies due date have you any tips.
i've been presuming that the 6th was day 14 of a 28 day cycle hypothetically .
which would make my LMP august 23rd so i estimated i'd be due on may 30th 2014.
would you come to this conclusion too or do you suggest anything else.
i live in ireland and for home-births they are so controlling that if a woman goes over 9 days she and her midwife are requested to go to the hospital for scans and amniotic levels tests etc.,
if all is fine by their tests then grand but if their machines show otherwise then they tell you must be induced.
i have faith in my baby and body though that all will be fine and i'd cross any challenging bridge if i come to it.
but i considered giving myself a bit of time to go overdue by just saying that i had a period on the 25 th of august
so i'd then be estimated to be due on june 1st 2014 which would give me a bit extra time.
though i generally give birth on time as they say, or a day or 2 before or after i've had 3 previous lovely home-births.
i just wondered what any one or you thought.
